Stamping with the STARS #DOswts391: Decorated with Happiness Holiday Card

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts391 Christmas in July Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I've been itchin' to use the new Decorated with Happiness Bundle and today was the perfect opportunity to showcase it.  When I first saw the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog, I was immediately drawn to it.  And...it did not disappoint!

 

Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS challenge #DOswts391 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards

Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS challenge #DOswts391 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards
DOstamping Tips:

  • All of the ornament "outline" images were stamped with Real Red ink, on Basic White cardstock.
  • The key to this card is the Stamping Off Technique
    • Ink up the "fill-in" images, then stamp once (or twice) on a scratch paper, then stamp inside outline images to create a lighter version of the ink color.
  • Have fun playing  around with a variety of coordinating colors!
  • And...don't forget the embellishments.  The new Festive Pearls were the perfect touch (includes Real Red, Silver, Gold & Soft Succulent).

 

I did this card for a swap with my DOstamperSTARS Team.  One of the many activities we do throughout the year.  I did wafflle between which direction to go with, portrait or landscape.

Stamping with the STARS #373: Retiform Technique Christmas Season

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts373.  This week we're sharing a stamping technique called Retiform.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts373 Retiform Technique Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

 The word Retiform means (I had to look it up): 

  1. having the form of or resembling a net
  2. composed of crossing lines and an intervening spaces

This was definitely a challenge for my STARS Team (and myself).  But after a couple of tries, we all got it.  For me, I tried two different ways of creating the intersecting sections and found one way much easier to do.  I will make a video on how to do it and will share it soon.

Here's my Christmas Season Retiform Technique card...

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Stamp Set & Retiform Technique card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts373 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS p

How'd She DO That? Painted Christmas Retiform card

  • Stamps:  Christmas Season, Christmas to Remember
  • Paper:
    • Evening Evergreen (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)  
    • Basic White (4" x 5-1/4" and scrap for sentiment)
  • Ink:  Evening Evergreen, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler
  • Other:  Sponge Daubers, Simply Elegant Trim, Stampin' Seal, Stampin' Dimensionals & Sticky Notes for masking

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Stamp Set & Retiform Technique card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts373 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS cu

Now that I have the Retiform Stamping Technique "mastered" - I will definitely be doing it again.  Give it a try - you'll feel like an artist.  My husband thought I "air-sprayed" the lines.   They were sponged, using a sponge dauber and straight-edge paper for "masking".

The Christmas Season & Christmas to Remember stamps are from the Painted Christmas Suite Collection.  A fabulous suite that is perfect for the holiday season.  Add it to your shopping cart today.

Stamping with the STARS #361: NEW Spiral Dye with Baby Wipe Technique

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts360.  This week we're sharing a super fun technique, the Baby Wipe Stamping Technique.  An oldie, but goodie!

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts361 Baby Wipe Technique Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I'm super excited to share my Baby Wipe Technique card with you today.  Not only does it feature the fun stamping technique, but also a new stamp from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (coming 5/4/21), called Spiral Dye!

NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-P

As soon as I soon the Spiral Dye stamp, it reminded me of my girls tie dyed t-shirts they made in Girl Scouts.  Fun memories.  I also thought my grandson, Max (who turned 14 yesterday), would love a card made with it.   

How'd She DO That? Spiral Dye Tie Dyed card:

  • Stamps/Bundle: Spiral Dye-156927 (coming 5/4), Happiest of Birthdays, Sweet Ice Cream
  • Paper:
    • Pacific Point (4-1/4" x 11" card bases)
    • Basic White (3-7/8" x 5-1/8", scrap for sentiment) 
    • Daffodil Delight (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink Refills:  Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Real Red
  • Other:  Stamparatus Plates, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stampin' Seal, Stampin' Dimensionals


NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-c

DOstamping Tips:

  • As the Spiral Dye stamp is a large background stamp, I used a Stamparatus Plate to build my "custom baby wipe stamp pad" on.
  • ALSO - I recommend cleaning the stamp prior to use, to remove any manufacturing film.  Either a pencil eraser or very fine sand paper.

Wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-1

 

  • Layer 3-4 baby wipes onto plate.  Use reinkers to add ink onto wipes.  Can do it randomly and strategically, like I did.
  • I was going for a tie dyed look, so I thought spreading the ink outwards like sunrays would be a good start (see photo above)
  • Then I filled in with more ink in the white spaces, moving it around with the ink bottle nozzle.  The photo below shows it ready for stamping.

Wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-3

 

  • Press stamp into the inked baby wipes then stamp onto white cardstock.
  • I stamped it 3 times - cleaning stamp between each time.  The photo below shows the first time. 
  • Then for the 2nd & 3rd times, I rotated the stamp about 3/4" each time, to get a more filled in look.

NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-s

  • As I was thinking about what ink color I would use for the sentiments, it occurred to me to use the baby wipe stamp pad for that too (uh, duh).
  • I used it for the inside sentiment too.  It looks so cool, doesn't it? 

NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-i

I totally had fun with the Baby Wipe Technique and making this card for Max.  I think he's gonna love it.  It turned out better than what I envisioned in my head!

Be sure to stock up on Ink Refills, so you can play with the Baby Wipe Technique too.   Then add the Spiral Dye to your wish list, so you can get it first thing on May 4th!

Thank you for shopping with me.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #359: Butterfly Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts359.  This week we're sharing Butterfly Inspiration.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts359 Butterfly Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting-P

Stampin' Up! has several choices of stamp sets with butterflies.  But it's always more fun to play with the newest one, the Butterfly Brilliance bundle.

I discovered a few things while making this "stencil" card.  See DOstamping Tips below.

How'd She DO That? Stenciled Butterfly Wings card

  • Stamps/Bundles: Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (SAVE 10% with Brilliant Wings Dies), Sweet Ice Cream 
  • Paper:
    • Gorgeous Grape (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Basic White (4" x 5-1/4", 1" x 4-1/4") 
    • Highland Heather (1-1/4" x 4-1/4")
    • White Backer Board (5-1/2" x 6-1/2")
  • Ink:  Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape
  • Stampin' Blends:  
  • Other:  Brilliant Wings Dies, Purple 3/8" Tricolor Ribbon (RETIRING), Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Blending Brushes, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stencil with Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wings Dies shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp butterflies on white panel with Gorgeous Grape and let dry
    • note the above photo doesn't show the stamping, as I wanted to let you see what only the stenciling looked like (as you could just do that without stamping.
  • Create & Use Stencil:
    • I recommend using a thicker cardstock or thin cardboard, like the white backer board that comes with our Designer Series Paper Packs.  Especially if you want to save and reuse the stencil.
    • Die cut the "group of butterflies" single die from (5-1/2" x 6-1/2") backer board.
    • On a piece of scratch paper (to protect your surface), place a small amount of Stampin' Seal.  Rub fingers over it to take away some of the stickiness.  Place the stamped white piece over the adhesive (this will keep it in place so it doesn't slide around.  I learned this the hard way - ha!).
    • On the back side of the stencil, add adhesive to a couple corners (rub away some stickiness).  Place stencil over white piece - aligning the butterfly images.
    • Use Blending Brush to add Highland Heather ink through stencil in a circular fashion.  (Start with a little ink and then add more to get your desired shade).
    • Remove stencil and stamped piece from scratch paper.

 

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting-C

At first, I wasn't sure I'd like all these butterflies on a single stamp.  But it actually saves time, which is great for anyone who wants to spend just a little of their extra time stamping and card making.  Try to think of it like a background stamp with lots of versatility. 

Add just about any sentiment to the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and you've got a card for any occasion.  Add it to your shopping cart today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Sale-a-Bration Approaching Perfection FREE stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #cardmaking #howdSheDOthat-B

DOstamping Tips:

  • I didn't want to stamp each sentiment individually.  So I mounted several stamps into a grouping on a clear block.   
  • I'm always looking for ways to be more efficient, and this fit the bill.
  • Experiment with different "layouts".
  • Then stamp in a variety of directions to create your own customer background!

If you're looking for some fun birthday sentiments, then Approaching Perfection stamp set is for you!  Add product totaling $50 or more to your shopping cart and it's yours for FREE. 

Remember - Sale-a-Bration ends February 28th.  Just days away.

Thank you for shopping with me!
